StatCan COVID-19: Data to Insights for a Better Canada
A series of articles on various subjects which explore the impact of COVID-19 on the socio-economic landscape. New articles will be released periodically.
- Impact of economic consequences of COVID-19 on Canadians' social concerns
This article examines the extent to which Canadians' personal financial concerns are associated with greater concerns about family life and social cohesion (family stress from confinement, violence in the home, maintaining social ties, the ability to cooperate and support one another, and the risk of civil disorder).
- Running the economy remotely: Potential for working from home during and after COVID-19
Physical distancing measures to stop the spread of COVID-19 have resulted in a large number of Canadians working from home, many for the first time. This sudden transition in how the economy is operating raises questions about how many jobs can reasonably be performed from home.
- Indigenous people in urban areas: Vulnerabilities to the socioeconomic impacts of COVID-19
Using the 2016 Census and the 2017 Aboriginal Peoples Survey, the article highlights key measures of economic well being (low income, food security, ability to deal with unexpected expenses) for First Nations people, Métis and Inuit living in medium population centres (30,000 to 99,999 residents) and large urban population centres (100,000 or more residents).
